4. Foxtel iQ3


This turd of a device was surely the worst tech product of last year but almost two-years on it’s still terrible. The promise of seamless, future-proof on-demand and live TV viewing over cable and internet seemed so great at the initial announcement (which, by pure coincidence, came a week before Netflix launched in Australia) but this buggy, laggy, crash-happy disaster of a device hasn’t improved at all. It’s infuriating to use and on-demand content is sub-standard definition. And what did they do for their best customers? Raise the price. The Fetch TV Mighty and ancient Foxtel iQ2 are far better set-top boxes.

[Edit: We've since published a guide on how to get rid of Foxtel, save money and get most of the same content for less].
